in american history. tomorrow, we'll open another. it's a story that continues to hold us in awe a government of the people by the people for the people. we come from factory and farm, from foreign lands where freedom in america are seen as in exorablely linked. we are connected in all manner of ways unseen. there will come a moment tomorrow between anxious and celebration, between hope and despair where this country will do something so rare and special that history has no precedent against measure it. it will once again defer to the will of the people who will freely choose who they shall be governed by and our remarkable story will continue. >> the fight is as old as this country itself, the battle for that most basic right of every american, the right to vote. the most contentious battles are waged in the swing states of ohio and florida. in miami this weekend voters waited up to nine hours to cast in person absentee ballots only to have election officials shut down the polls because they claimed not enough have resources or staff to be able to complete the job. one voter shut out after w
these people and the results of this investigation, fulfilling compasses obligation to provide oversight of us we had many opportunities to improve and provide better protection in these opportunities run the gamut from following behavior of those who are in charge entities like mf global, to monitoring and modifying the ways in which the ratings agencies do their business, to their job. and there have been so many failures in so many ways, not only in mf global, but in other, similar stories in recent history. one common strand seems to be that we need to provide our regulators with better tools to pursue the enforcement of laws that existed prior to the massive imposition of dog crank. we do not have infinite resources and our financial marketplace. we do not have infinite resources to pursue every aspect of what regulators might want to pursue in dodd-frank, but they need to be able to dedicate resources to better following the nature of transactions in this rapidly evolving marketplace into understanding how they can curb the excesses of human nature in the case of mr. corzine by a more ef

part of the historic results of this last week where he had 20 women in the u.s. senate, and historic number and rebecca rightly reminded us that it was in part because of things like emily's list that i want to have a conversation about the kind of institutions and the organizations that have been working quiet they all this time to make this moment possible. i don't have to say something about emily's list. >> families list within washington politics, it is an incredibly powerful force. at some point they were the largest organization. i don't know if that's still true, in the day of the super pacs, they are not the largest anybody. so emily's list is an organization that supports democratic pro-choice women for all kinds of offices around the country. they are very powerful and have been working really hard for a long time to get more women effect did. other celebration about the creator of the woman, sometimes you want to say this is terrific progress in other times you say wow, 20%. but it's very, very work getting women elected. so i cited emily's list because they're the bigge

rice made in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. that could be problematic. >> initially it was a spontanous reaction to what transspired in carey as a consequence of the video. >> that explanation continues to dodge rice. senator mccain said rice failed to get the facts straight. >> don't we all have a responsibility before we go out and talk to the american people and all five sunday morning shows for verifying that the facts were true. there is classified information that she had access to that contradicted that. and said al-qaida was decimated along with bin laden being killed. al-qaida is not decimated but roaring back in most parts of the middle east. >> the republicans senators mccain and ayotte will drill down and find out what happened and critics are tough on rice. but the white house is continuing to show strong support. >> ambassador rice has done an excellent job at the united nations and highly qualified for any number of positions in the foreign policy arena and i will leave it at that. >> today's meeting place between ambassador rice and her staunchest cri
middle class. >> reporter: craig bosswell is live. thank you for joining us. what is the atmosphere like there? >> reporter: besides being very cold, there is certainly excitement, an anticipation, and there is a sense that you're basically at the end of a very, very long tunnel. of course, there is apprehension. they have been working towards this for so long and it's going to stop tonight after the stop in des moineses this evening, president obama arrives here in chicago where he will spend the night in his home and meet with campaign and will be right here tomorrow night for the election night party and there is a sense that the work is done out there. there will be radio interviews and it's time for voters to get out there and vote and they feel like they rallied their supporters and they're ready to see the result comes in. >> let me ask you what is the in-game plan? here we are hours now away from election day. does the obama camp, are they sending out surrogates to the key battleground states? you said the president himself will be heading back to chicago tonight and will be ther
that he's doing now so when some of us suggested the misreading of the mandate he did it for years ago. he threw away the approval rating to spend the stimulus package written on all this other stuff, massive debt and spending and you had a million people go to the streets around august, april 15th. he had only just showed up and started spending crazily. tarp ii me and you then have a reaction from the movement that reacted in 2010. people lost the elections over spending too much. okay. the first by half to get whacked was arlen specter of pennsylvania. i was working with him to get in the elected and on the labour union demand not wanting to have elections to have power. he was going to fend off the right of center primary and be able to govern and get reelected and then obama said if you vote for the stimulus instead of philadelphia and we can probably do some things to be helpful in pennsylvania and he said i just want a free election. when the primary. i'm going to sign on the stimulus. obama is going to stay out of get out the vote against me and people will be happy i brought someb
using the energy in virginia which again would create more jobs. >> reporter: voter core win long said he made his decision for tim kaine. >> he is a moderate democrat. i favor moderate republicans and moderate democrats. the choice between those two so i went with the democrat. >> reporter: some voters say no mat here the final vote goes to, it is a relief to see the end of the tv ads in particular. >> anything on television without having ads. and i am so sick of it. >> reporter: some political watchers expect that the virginia senate race will be followed by the presidential race, meaning that if the democrats take presidency, tim kaine will be senator. if it goes to the republicans, then george allen. we'll have to see. we'll explore that more at 6:00. richard jordan, news4. >> voting wasn't quick or easy for thousands of people in our area who waited in long lines today. and it didn't matter whether you voted in virginia, the district or maryland. a look at some of the problems that slowed down voting. >> reporter: they've handled here at roosevelt high school. these are people he
us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte
that tell us the most about politics. everyone thinks the popular vote is close to 50-50. >> that's right. we see in the states that have closed, there are a couple of calls. obama doing great in the northeast. mitt romney, doing well in the south. states projected for obama, vermont, maine. going out on a limb. and for romney, he has georgia, indiana, south carolina, west virginia. the ones we care about, virginia and ohio. they feel ok about florida and virginia. but a sign of trouble. jonathan martin is hearing the margins for him in chesterfield county just outside of richmond, where he is doing well, it is not good enough. if he's losing there, it's a sign of trouble in the state. in ohio, romney is worried about the midwest. wisconsin, and ohio, real nervousness. in the obama war room, confidence. exit polls looked good for john kerry. there are jokes about president kerry. but their models are coming in. the vote is coming in how they expected. >> one state declared is indiana, which obama won and it is called for romney. it shows the map is smaller this time, the map is smaller. s
that the employer can use. now, i grant this isn't just a skills training program, but you've got to know how to write, to speak, to think. and i think a lot of our problem is that we graduate many students that don't necessarily do that well. and if the humanity majors, and they do not do that especially well, then they have got trouble. so, and they can't necessarily prove they do those things will. earlier someone said, i think you, jim, talked about the need for computer skills. my guess is that if the humanities majors, major really helped some sort of certification, that showed certain skills. i think that we haven't fully grappled with how to deal with our desire, our feeling that we need to have the humanities as a critical part of the university, we need to have the numbers, students take these. we believe that but we haven't grappled with how we can get these folks jobs. they are not going to get at the big corporations and less they have very good grades. and we can't necessarily, so far, it's not easy for them to establish they have the skills, especially if they don't have those
chaplain, reverend steven willis, first baptist church in west virginia. the chaplain: let us pray. to the one who governs seas and quells the storms, we thank you for offering each life and granting hope in times of calamity. we come to you on the eve of this election seeking wisdom. for failing to take up the calls of the fatherless, we ask for mercy. for insufficiently defending the case of the widow, we humbly repent. teach us to fear you and keep your commandments. may we learn to do good, seek justice, and rebuke those who would oppress your children. restore our rulers as at the first, and our judges as at the beginning. that we might be called a nation of righteousness, of faithful people. may we be redeemed by justice and those repent by righteousness. let the retched poor, pitiful, naked, and blind experience the transformation of your grace so that your name, o lord, might be exalted among the nations. amen. the speaker pro tempore: thank you, chaplain. pursuant to section 3-a of the house resolution 788, the journal of the last day's proceedings is approved. the chair w
their common want to buy it from us. we appreciate that. it is that attitude that keeps us in business. if we didn't have that, we would not still be here. >> this one has always been very involved in the community. from small things, we service a ticket agent. everything from chamber orchestra comments, we sell tickets for. we have become a supporter of the arts in that way. which also brings a lot of people in. we are also on local boards and involved with the local downtown organization. and are involved with local schools and supporting activities there. some of it is monitoring and some is helping out. >> we are definitely reliant upon our community of readers and writers and the people who support independent stories we have the vermont college of fine arts right up the street that has writing programs for both adults and children. persuasive customers go when they come in as our best-seller table. that is the independent booksellers. the best-seller list. it is a survey of independence across the country. it is one of independent booksellers are selling more stuff. people go straight t
